A murder investigation uncovers sordid secrets and haunting mistakes

The Darkwater Inn stands tall and proud in the French Quarter, the hub of New Orleans. Bourbon Street is bustling, and General Manager Adelaide Fountaine has her hands full with a hotel at full capacity. She, along with everyone else, is shocked when a body is found: a hotel guest stabbed with a kitchen knife.

Detective Beau Savoie, Adelaide’s childhood friend, is on the case. As Beau digs into the victim’s past, he unearths a shocking connection between Adelaide and the murdered guest. Beau is hurt that his friend—the woman he’s quietly loved for years—kept the truth from him. And, to make matters worse, the stress of the investigation has sent Adelaide right into the comforting arms of her coworker Dimitri. But Beau can’t press Adelaide too hard . . . he’s keeping secrets of his own.

Can Adelaide and Beau afford to hide from the truth with a killer on the loose?

Beauregard Savoie stared out into the city streets. His city. He’d lived in New Orleans all his life and had no desire to be anywhere else. Yet just because he loved the area didn’t mean he was unaware of the harshness hiding behind the slower, simpler way of life. Monsters could—and often did, hide in the dim back-alleys and passages. It was Beau’s job to find the monsters and put them away, but not tonight. After the discussion with his captain about the possibility of him being promoted . . . no, he wouldn’t fight monsters tonight.
